Recovering from Fraud...?

Hi all,

I know this seems hard to believe but - my friend hadn't checked her bank balance for over 2 years and has only now found out she's been a victim of fraud. Her bank has told her that if it's over 6 months so there's no come back. Does anyone know if this is correct?

The reason for her odd situation is that her parents died a few years ago and her inheritance was just put in her bank account ('virgin one' type of account). With such a large sum she never felt she needed to check it. Apparently though, someone has been emptying her bank account over the last two years and left her with nothing but 90K of debt(!).

Any advice you can give would be much appreciated!

Thanks,Ben
